Security personnel have been stationed at strategic places in Abeokuta as the Ogun Governorship Election Petition Tribunal delivers its judgement.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that there was heavy security presence as early as 6:00 a.m on Saturday at the Isabo Magistrate Court, Abeokuta.

The security operatives comprising the Police, Department of State Security Service (DSS), Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and Amotekun Corps cordoned roads leading to the court.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate, Ladi Adebutu, had filed a petition against the election of Gov. Dapo Abiodun of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as governor of Ogun.
